Gerald Ford was a war criminal, straight and simple!
Come on people, no more of this idealistic claptrap about Ford. The guy funded Indonesia, when they massacred woman and children in East Timor, he supported Pinochet. The guy was a bum and the guy should not be lionized like he was.

25. Consider the source Pat.
All they ever do is criticize and try to bat the hornets nests.....that's their job.

Other than that, I hope you having a nice holiday.

Always nice to see you around.....

26. No you get over YOURSELF.
Your rudeness and divisiveness is so unnecessary, boring and so transparent.

Its beyond obvious what you are doing Cali.

27. What am I doing?
I thought I was just pissed off by the bullshit. As for rude, I responded to rude with rude. Not terribly mature of me, but there you are. In case you neglected to notice, the person you're rushing to to defend was accusing people of not caring about the deaths in Indonesia because the victims were not white. In other words, he/she was calling them racists without a shred of evidence. I see crap like that, and I can't resist calling people on it.

30. Pfft. If Chavez was our President I'd man the barricades against him.
Let the Venezuelans have who they want, but I would never want to live under his rule.

9. He played "the innocent guy" well.
That's all I can figure.

Go tell that to a mom in Chile whose son was tortured and killed because "the innocnt guy" was up for re-election.

10. Ford singlehandedly caused global warming
Oh wait, that was Hillary who did that. Or did she cause dinosaurs to go extinct? Too bad we couldn't ask Ronald Reagan. He was around when the dinosaurs disappeared, right?

18. oh please....
war criminal? why not just do like the right wing Christians do and brand someone yu disagree with as in league with Satan?

Oh...I know....you are trying to give the freepers something to point to so they can point to us dissing the dead before he is even buried.....I bet there are freepers jumping for joy to see this sort of thing!

Geez, you don't have to join in the praise of Ford, but on the other hand you should have the good sense to know when to keep your mouth shut. At least wait until he is buried. K?....

34. In that case, Carter too was a war criminal...
he did support the Shah of Iran, after all. That also means that every single U.S. president would be a war criminal. Are we willing to make such absurd statements?
